EMBODY more and more FLUID LOVE, EASE, WELL-BEING & JOY as you surf the waves of your life...

services

Here, we welcome embodied awareness into our everyday life as a path to sustaining self-care, freedom, and connection to the universal flow of well-being. We cultivate juicy BEingness amidst the busy DOing of our lives. We learn to read sensations and feelings in the body as tools and gifts to help awaken and guide us to where we can open more to love. We courageously welcome all that we find challenging in our experience as an invitation and a doorway to deeper, more spacious freedom and aliveness. As we stop habitually contracting and pushing away from what challenges us, the natural universal flow of being rushes in like water, and we reclaim ever-growing joy, vibrant health, and well-being. In this way we can let our light shine brighter and our love reach farther...

Because it really boils down to Love. 

All love is self-love because ultimately there is only one Self.
— Eckhart Tolle

Most of us live as a body-mind so full of habitual tension and conditioned patterns of resistance, that we don't even know what we're feeling half of the time, what we want, or what we're longing to express in the world. We're not aware of the extent to which we push away pain, uncomfortable feelings, or tightness in the body. 

 

As we cultivate a growing awareness in the body~ an embodied awareness ~ we begin to sense how these patterns of tension rob us of vitality, freedom, and flowing full expression. Our approach is not one of fixing, trying harder, or getting rid of anything, but one of totally embracing what is, as it is living inside of us. We sense and feel through the body, engaging with it as a trusted guide, and celebrate its great wisdom and creative, dynamic, responsive intelligence as it brings us to greater wholeness and connection with what is most meaningful to us in every moment. 

Soma ~ The intelligence of life as experienced from within the body through ever-present,
ever-evolving, ever-blooming sensation.
— Risa Kaparo, Ph.D.

With courageous, compassionate attention we allow a deep unwinding, respond to each opportunity to extend more love to ourselves, and birth healthier patterns that foster our fluid, relaxed, authentically expressed embodied being and loving in the world.

It is my deep honor to be your co-navigator on a collaborative journey to wholeness, as you learn to surf the waves of your life with greater relaxation, ease, presence, grace and joy.

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
— Jellaludin Rumi, translation by Coleman Barks

SomaticArt:                                     ARTWORK TO AWAKEN TO           

Each embodied meditation painting acts as a visual and energetic invitation to the present moment, to a deeper level of being and connection to love.

Each original painting emerges through a process blending somatic meditation and movement, and deeply guided by intuition and the intelligence of the body. Prayers, blessings, and invocations for the painting's recipient are layered in and often covered over with imagery and color. The painting becomes infused with the peace of the process and energy of the hidden messages, resulting in a vibrant, evocative, meditation tool.        Read more...
